With an estimated 30 million people living near the UK coastline, 291 inhabited islands and almost 8 million people living in our highly polluted capital, UAP understands the importance of door hardware that can stand up to the elements.

Many of our products are available with our unique Nanocoast® coating which makes them corrosion resistant, meaning they are perfect for environments with high salt levels or high pollution levels. Our Nanocoast® products have been salt spray tested to ASTM B117 for 2,000 hours and come with a ten year coastal guarantee, so you can live anywhere in the UK, whether it be on your own little island or in the middle of a big city, and not have to worry about your door furniture tarnishing.

Our Nanocoast® technology was designed specifically for properties in coastal areas or industrial areas. In these areas acid rain and salt attack the metal coatings making them tarnish very quickly. When we were designing the technology we knew there were three factors to be considered to ensure the products would pass a minimum of 2,000 hours in a salt spray test, these were the right base metal, the right PVD coating and even the right factory. The result of finding the correct combination of these factors is Nanocoast® which stops the metal coatings from tarnishing.

The Nanocoast® products are made from Stainless Steel and are available with Mirror   Polished Stainless Steel and PVD Gold finishes. Products in the Nanocoat® range include letterplates, letters & numerals, door knockers and door viewers.
